Baregaras are horned, crimson-furred, gorilla-like outsiders crafted by the demon lord Angazhan from the souls of especially cruel primates, particularly charau-ka, girallons, and awakened apes.
Baregaras are 12 feet tall from their feet to their horns, even when walking stooped on their knuckles. They can weigh up to 1,500 pounds.
Each baregara has a maw in its chest, where the heart of a mortal gorilla would be. This maw can consume and transport souls, turning them into bright purple lights. The baregara then returns these souls to Ahvoth-Kor, where the souls are built into new baregaras.
Habitat and society
Baregaras operate in small groups much like mortal apes, though as outsiders they share no other ecological or societal traits. These groups have complex, inscrutable hierarchies that revolve around trophies from their past kills, though such rivalries are ignored when working on their demon lord's orders or against a common enemy.
Soul-bearing baregaras are often mistaken for will-o'-wisps as they swing through the canopies of the Mwangi Jungle. Quetz couatls and baregaras are mortal enemies who mercilessly hunt each other when they encounter one another on the Material Plane.
